Episode 140 of Kevin's Corner updates you on Andrew Luck's injury, the wide receiver debate, news on allegations against Bobby Okereke, Ben Banogu switching positions, plus our first ever interview. Rock Ya-Sin's position coach at Temple Nathan Burton stops by to talk about Rock's time at Temple + why he thinks the Colts got a steal. 

On Andrew Luck's Calf Injury

"He doesn't feel the need to rush it at all. Frank Reich isn't ruling out minicamp just yet for Andrew Luck. Still thinks there's a chance he could participate next week. Part of me kinda says at this point ya might as well keep him on the mend. You know? What's two days of minicamp practice because often the third practice of minicamp, if they even have it, is mostly for rookies."

On Johnathan Cyprien Visit

"Chris Ballard - there may not be a position he likes more in terms of his depth than safety. He's obsessed with Mathias Farley. At times I think George Odum could be one of his sons with how often he talks about Odum on his own, and then he traded up 20 spots to take Khari Willis. Those are your three depth guys. And then you have obviously Malik Hooker, who has participated and been healthy the entire spring. Frank Reich was gushing about just how easily Malik Hooker is moving this year in the spring. And then you have Clayton Geathers who you expect to be healthy come camp. So five safeties is probably enough. I don't even think it would be a guarantee that Cyprien would make this roster if he came in here. Again, he would have to prove he is healthy...but I get why the Colts are doing this. You have that injury cloud with Geathers, Hooker, and even Farley."

Nathan Burton on Rock Ya-Sin

"We all thought that he might end up being a first rounder, so I think the Colts are actually lucky to grab him in the second round. We thought he was a first round talent just being an elite person, and an elite football player. When he slipped to the 2nd round, he may be disappointed, but I think that's awesome you know to go in the 2nd round, but he'll still play with a chip on his shoulder this year. That's just the kind of person he is. He wants to be the best, and he'll carry that with him this year."
